5.0 out of 5 stars This is a staggeringly good film, 2 May 2014
This review is from: The Butler [DVD] (DVD)
I had no idea what to expect from this film . Its breadth and ambition suggested too much had probably been taken on. Completely wrong, it is a quite beautully made, compelling and moving film. Right up in the fore of my best ever films

1.0 out of 5 stars utter garbage, 23 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a litigation solicitor ( no, not like Slippery Slope) of 25years I thought I might enjoy this book
Wrong; it is simply diabolical.
Poor, smutty, absurdly improbable, uninteresting. I can't think you'd need to be in chambers long to find far more entertaining subject matter.
If you were thinking of buying this , keep your hand in your pocket

5.0 out of 5 stars Breathtaking, 18 May 2011

This review is from: North Face [DVD] [2008] (DVD)
I too have done Mont Blanc. I too found it difficult. I've read all the usual Eiger melodrama climbing literature and will have life long respect for the mountain and those with the cojones to tackle it; not me for a moment.
Forget historical lip service; this film is the movies
But Boy, is it "the movies"
For the mountaineer absolute respect for the courage of the fated four. At a time in Mountaineering history as Walter Bonatti reminds us in " Mountains of my Life", risk was accentuated manyfold
For the "actors" and stunt providers, just terrific
For the makers, you can't truly do Mountaineering surely and not respect this film
Don't be put off by the subtiitles; you don't notice
For Toni Kurz an immortal alpinist
Thank you
Just excellent

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! (more than love it! love it! loveit!), 7 May 2010
I've never been to Port Isaacs. I don't know these Guys, I'm a Townie who heard 20 seconds on the Telly.
I knew I'd adore it all. You will or you won't
It restores one's faith in Olde England; that things that are great about Britain are being preserved.
Its my childhood, its the rugby club, its my family
The Mingulay Boat Song. Just Fantastic. Grandpa wasn't quite so melodic.
I'm off to Port Isaacs. Just hope they aren't too famous to show

5.0 out of 5 stars The Pizza connection, 13 Nov 2009
This review is from: The Pizza Connection (Paperback)
Its hard to believe no-one has reviewed this book for Amazon. If you are a lover of true Mafia reading, this book is just superb. I'm on my third read and it's still stunning

5.0 out of 5 stars My Fair lady, 24 Oct 2003

This review is from: My Fair Lady [DVD] [1965] (DVD)
I am no movie buff. This film however must surely be one of the greatest films of the 20th Century. The sustained witty, melodic sumptuousness of the production, the visual delight of the DVD play and the engaging beauty of Audrey Hepburn are simply stunning and the film can be watched with renewed pleasure time after time. You will not buy a better DVD
